I love how they expand this idea of music recommendations.

From some drop ins (especially from Namjoon) on twitter, until one day each member revealed some song recs in form of a spotify list. Now they release a group list, summer themed. I love this concept of sharing (even adding a few thoughts about the song choice). I kind of tend to have more motivation to check songs out, if there are a few (compared to the single occasions on twitter) so I really like this idea of little music lists.

And it is sweet that they did a 'group' list this time, with every member contributing. Love how diverse the list is, too

I was thinking the same thing when I saw this list. How I'm happy they are continuing to all share more of the music that they enjoy and inspires them.

And I'm really interested in Tae's music taste, I hope he continues and tries to explore maybe infusing some B-sides with Jazz themes.

I don't listen to much japanese music but I do like ONE OK ROCK and YUI so that's pretty cool to see them recommended! 

Justin Bieber's Beauty and A Beat also reminds me of summer, I think it's because of the pool party mv haha and Love Song is such a catchy bop, it's stuck in my head now thanks jimin :ppapv:

[Naver Music] 170619 BTS recommends songs they want to listen to during Summer
First time in Kpop, BTS won the award at the 2017 Billboard Music Awards
 Songs they want to listen to during Summer
Let's meet the songs chosen and recommended by BTS who have seized our hearts with deadly charms


Top Social Artist who enjoys communicating with the public
Leader Rap Monster (23) who just finished their Hiroshima show in their recent Japanese tour didn't lose his low tone even while he was short of breath. His voice through the receiver sounded quite grown up and his fluent answers made me question if he had participated quite a few times on MBC's "100-minute debate" before.
The group has spent at least more than 6 months of the year in foreign countries and as if they were rewarded for this long and rough journey, BTS became the first Asian singer to win the Top Social Award at the Billboard Music Awards last May. Ever since this category was created in 2010, they were the first singer to break Justin Bieber's 6-year stronghold. 
BTS's popularity in the overseas is difficult to describe. It's because the group sells out tickets in every country they visit, and the unity of their fans who attend to concerts to see them again is amazing. What could be the reason why these fans swarm like bees for every show?
"I'm not sure. I think we always have this thought. Although we have many fans who come to rewatch our show, we tell ourselves that we need to focus on the fans who come to watch the show for the first time. When we repeat the same song for over 50 times, it's easy for us to lose tension and think it's going to be easy unknowingly and it's easy for us to have other thoughts too but we tell each other that the moment we have this thought "it's going to be the end". I think I could say that we try our best to keep that feeling we had when we performed with eagerness and dedication during the first broadcast?"
When they held the showcase in the US, the home of music, there was something the owner of the arena that can hold 12000 seats had told the members. "I've never seen a case, all US artists combined achieving "sold out" in such short time." BTS's popularity in the US is rising rapidly. However, they are still careful. Rap Monster said, "The North and South America fans are intuitive and strong like us so we are somewhat confident since we have many matching aspects. However, we don't think we're at any official advancing stage. We will steadily work hard and when the road opens, we believe there will be a chance when the time comes."
BTS's biggest weapon is "Aesthetics of exchange work" that is not easy to find in different idol groups. It's the so-called, "all members equalize each other". Members who are prominent in different positions like rap, dance, vocal, compose, etc "deliver" their talent to the members who are less prominent in their area to standardize the talents of all members. This is why the members of this group don't have "different" role neither their roles "divided". 
This bonded collaboration relationship played a role in improving the group's ability to communicate and sympathize. "We were able to unite as one with one SNS account was because the members always communicated and sympathized with each other. When we were able to understand each other's feelings just by looking at their eyes, we didn't have a reason to have fun separately. This is also why we try to write about things that can be related to reality instead of some foolish dreams when we're writing lyrics. Our story has to deliver to our fans as their own story and they should be able to relate to the song."
BTS's goal is to stand on the world stadium stages where top celebrities like Cold Play and Justin Bieber performed. The moment when he spoke about this physical goal, Rap Monster's tone rose a little too. It seemed like their determination was just a start.
On this week's "Musician's Choice", BTS selected songs for the theme, "Songs I want to listen to when the summer approaches". "Most people tend to choose powerful songs when it's summer but I selected calmer songs. I'm curious about the songs chosen by other members too. Even I'm looking forward to it a lot."
The selected songs include classic jazz to mania pop, a colorful list. I began to question, "Even a song like this?" when I came across a song. It seemed like the secret to "BTS No. 1" role was slowly unraveling.
Words/ Kim Pyeung (Professional writer of pop music)
Jungkook's recommendation: Steve Aoki, Louis Tomlinson - 'Just Hold On'
"I guess fast/exciting song is a must for summer? I feel happier the more I listen to this song and it's a perfect song to listen to in summer."
Jungkook's recommendation: One Ok Rock -  'We Are'
"I find peace when I listen to this song when I'm sweaty and tired due to the hot weather. When I listen to the song in full volume, loud enough to blast my earphones, this song gives me strength no matter how hot and annoying it can be"
Jimin's recommendation: YUI - 'Good-Bye Days'
"This is a song I've been listening to very often ever since I was very little. I began to listen to this song often regardless of the season, it didn't matter if I was happy, tired, or sad from some point. I think it would be nice to listen to it when the summer is approaching"
Jimin's recommendation: Sara Bareilles - 'Love Song'
"This song makes me happy by just listening to it. It's a song I surely want to listen to even during summer"
V's recommendation: Chet Baker - 'Blue Room'
"This is the song by my most favorite trumpeter Chet Baker. I think it would fit on a summer night. I wish I could create a song that has such mood like this song."
V's recommendation: Sigur Ros - 'All Alright'
"My most favorite songs are songs I can listen during the dawn. This is a nice song to listen to when you're walking down the road during the summer night. Among my most favorite songs, it's also the style I want to try working on."
J Hope's recommendation: Jazzy Fact - Waste of Time
"I think it's a song that really expressed how it's a waste of time to just stay at home during the beautiful summer. Whenever I listen to this song, I feel like I want to go outside and play"
J Hope's recommendation: Justine Bieber - Beauty and a beat
"This is the first song that comes to my mind when I think of summer. And every tune reminds me of the sea. It's a song that gives me vibes as if it's already summer even I listen to it during other seasons."
Rap Monster's recommendation: Frank Ocean - 'Super Rich Kids'
"This is the very first song that comes to my mind when I think of summer. It's moderately up tuned and it's moderately calm. I wish I could play this song, get on the tube and float on water. I think I would feel like "Super Rich Kids" just like the title."
Rap Monster's recommendation: Peppertones' - Ready, Get Set, Go!
"If Frank Ocean's song is the sea or the pool, this song reminds me of mountains and parks. It's perfect when you get on the bicycle, play the song loud with the bluetooth speaker and ride on full speed thoughtlessly on a very, very hot day with the wind blowing on your face. The song is more fun because it's simple and it makes the summer more fun"
Suga's recommendation : DJ DOC - "Summer story"
"When I went to the manhwa store to stay away from the heat on a very hot day when I was younger, this song used to play all the time. I think the owner uncle of the manhwa store especially likes this song. This is the song that comes to mind all the time when the summer is approaching."
Suga's recommendation : Clon - Kung Ddari Sha Bah Rah
"I remember going to the Cheongsong valley with cousin brothers during a very hot summer when I was younger. We all sang " Kung Ddari Sha Bah Rah" together over there and I can still clearly remember that time when I think of summer"
Jin's recommendation: Julia Michaels - 'Issues'
"I heard this song for the first time at the BBMA we recently attended. When she cried after her stage due to emotions, I felt, "ah, that's emotions". Her voice was so beautiful and I hope many people would listen to her song now with the summer approaching us."
Jin's recommendation: Luis Fonsi, Justin Bieber, Daddy Yankee - 'Despacito'
"I feel like I'm at a South American festival when I listen to this song. It's a great song to listen to and dance alone while you're in the morning shower. I feel excited when I listen to this song without any reason."
